Disorder and Interactions in Topological Floquet Systems

Project description

Shedding new light on the behaviours of exotic materials

Building on concepts developed in the 1970s and 1980s, the theoretical description of topological phases of matter won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016. These exotic quantum states can now be engineered and possess interesting robust properties. An in-depth understanding of their behaviour is still needed, in particular in the presence of disorder and interactions. The EU-funded DInTopF project focuses on Floquet systems (periodically-driven systems where topological quantum states of matter can arise) to reach this goal. The project will study the effect of disorder and interactions on topological Floquet-engineered systems implemented with ultracold atoms to shed more light on the properties of topological materials.
